Second take. Something more peaceful

Both mineral and vegetal, more negative space, less colors, I like it :-)

 

 

First take. The womb of the thistle

I started the collage with a very zen composition. I loved to paint the tissue paper and to see the structure and the hue emerge. Two days later I brought materials from the forest and I used them as tools to ink the project, just improvising. The result is harsher than the initial collage because the mood at home was quite different from the day I did the collage. It seems that "something" had to come out of me ! :-)

I decided to call it "the womb of the thistle"
